Spring Cleaning A Japanese Maple

Spring Cleaning A Japanese Maple

This weekend we did a little bit of spring cleaning on the dormant hardy bonsai. Japanese Maples only push growth from their internodes. That means when you prune them back, the remaining branch will die back to its closest internode, where new buds will break. This die-back doesn’t hurt the tree, but it can look […]

Cleaning Up A Ficus Retusa

Sometimes when we import trees they have a rough time in transportation. With one batch of Ficus Retusa (Tiger Bark Ficus) we got about a month ago, the trees had been bare-rooted and de-foliated. In those situations all you can do is pot them up and wait to see what happens! We potted the tree […]

After The Hurricane & Preparing For Winter

Now that Hurricane Sandy has passed I wanted to let everyone know that Allshapes Bonsai is back open. Although we did lose one greenhouse in the back of the property, it could have been much worse, and the trees have been moved into the remaining greenhouses, so you may see some old juniper pre-bonsai that […]
